  • Nate – Always remember, garbage in, garbage out. Get yourself a nice reposado tequila for this one.

    Being heavily influenced by Filipino friends, co-workers, girlfriend, etc, I’ve developed a real taste for tamarind, so as soon as I saw this, I knew it was going to be a hit around here, and it was. Thanks for such a simple idea and such a great name!
